If anyone in Hollywood is always smiling, it’s Jamie Lee Curtis.
Admit it. The actress can’t go wrong. She’s been entertaining us with movies for decades, including Halloween, True Lies, and Freaky Friday.
She has recently supported her transgender daughter and is just as bright and shining in her private life.
There are several other reasons why she would save us all!
There are strong roots of Jamie Lee in Hollywood.
She comes from a very famous family. Her father, Tony, was an actor who had already appeared in more than 100 movies.
Her mother, Janet Leigh, was an actress, singer, and dancer. She is best known for playing in Alfred Hitchcock’s movie Psycho.
Some celebrities don’t please fans with nostalgia, but Jamie Lee loves to give!
In the past, she recreated the famous screaming shower scene performed by her mother in the movie Psycho.
Recently, she paid tribute to her deceased mother at the premiere of her latest movie, Halloween Kill.
Instead of the usual red carpet outfit, she dressed up as her mother’s famous character!
Included was a blue button-down dress and a blonde bob. She even wore a blood-stained shower curtain for those who didn’t get the reference. The similarities between Jamie and her mother were horrifyingly good.
Honesty has always been her strength.
Many celebrities avoid exposing much of their personal life to their fans, but Jamie Lee keeps them closer.
Like when she shared her victorious story about overcoming opioid addiction for 10 years. The celebrity is now sober and healthy, as she can do today.
“I was a cruelly controlled drug addict and an alcoholic,” she told * Variety *.
“I never did that at work. Hadn’t taken any medication by 5 pm. I hadn’t taken painkillers at 10 am,” she mentioned.
She even shared that she once consumed cocaine with her famous celebrity father.
Fortunately, she turned to help after reading an article about painkiller addiction in 1993.
The announcement of her story helped her become a pillar of power for those suffering from substance abuse. She started a charity called MY HAND IN YOURS in 2020.
They sell comfort items for those who are struggling.
All proceeds go to the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital.
Jamie Lee has always supported her family in addition to helping others. She has been married to her husband Christopher Guest for nearly 37 years!
They adopted two children together in the years 1986 and 1996.
Jamie Lee was very supportive when her daughter Ruby appeared as a transgender last year.
In an interview with her people, the actress shared how she was a “truly grateful student” to learn everything about her daughter’s transition.
She said, “It speaks a different language.”
“It’s learning new terms and words. I’m not used to it. Not the one who pretends to know a lot about it, and I’m going to ruin it,” she said.
“I’m going to make a mistake. I want to avoid big mistakes. ”
This is the kind of support that any transgender person would want, and Jamie Lee has been giving it in groups!
The purpose of mothers and daughters to share their stories is to inspire others.
“It’s worth it if someone can read it, look at Ruby and my pictures, and be free to say who I am,” Jamie said.
Believe it or not, these are just some of the reasons Jamie Lee Curtis is a true Hollywood gem.
She is always supportive and affectionate, with feet on the ground and the ability to build relationships.
Ruby couldn’t ask for a better mom, and she couldn’t ask for a better Hollywood icon that we admire as a fan.
Thank you, Jamie Lee!
